Deadline for nominations to Electoral Services – 4pm 9/03/2015

Could I please remind you that nomination papers will be only be accepted until 4pm on Thursday 9 April 2015, nomination papers and forms of consent must be delivered by hand to Electoral Services, Civic Offices, London Road, Basingstoke during office hours (Monday to Friday between 10.00am – 4.00pm).

An appointment should be made for final checking and deposit of their nomination papers, so they should call 01256 845298 prior to their visit.  When making an appointment, they should  allow sufficient time for them to get signatures on a new form, should the submitted form be found to be invalid.  Please note that appointments should be made before the last day for submission, as experience has shown that it leaves insufficient time for candidates  to correct invalid nomination papers.

It is their responsibility to ensure that your nomination papers are delivered in the correct manner and by the required deadlines. We recommend that the candidate or someone they trust hand-delivers them, so you can be sure they are delivered to the Returning Officer in time.
